Duty Days The child's name listed on the calendar indicates your family's parent duty day at the preschool. On your assigned day, you are responsible for sending one adult representative from your family (that has completed a police information check) to help at the preschool during class time.
Reminders for duty day responsibilities: -Please arrive 15 minutes early to class on your assigned parent duty day. - Bring a pair of clean inside shoes to wear in the preschool class. - On your parent duty day, your child is also a special helper in the classroom called the “Busy Bear”. On your child’s “Busy Bear” day, please help them choose ONE item to bring to school for show and tell.
If you know in advance that you are not able to make your scheduled duty day: Please talk to other parents and find someone who is willing to switch days with you. Mark any changes on the Master Duty Day Calendar posted outside the classroom on the bulletin board.
If you have a last-minute reason why you cannot fulfill your duty day: Please contact parents who volunteered to be Emergency Duty Parents to find someone who can fill in.
Ermineskin Community Preschool generally follows the Edmonton Public Schools calendar. There are some exceptions (i.e. we do not always take PD days or days in lieu.) Please consult the calendars above for Preschool classroom dates.
